16oz can into a Delirium Tremens tulip.
Bengali Tiger, like most of Sixpoint's lineup, is an exercise in balance executed to perfection. The pour produces a towering head of manila foam that slowly recedes to a fat patch of bubbles and ring of foam that coats the insides of the tulip with spackles of lace. Body is an attractive, clear copper hue and carbonated. Nose boasts a sweet, juicy hop aroma that's both floral and tropical at the same time. Pineapple, mangoes, and pear balance nicely against a clean malt backdrop of light caramel sweetness and toasted grain.
The flavor foregoes tropical/floral hops notes for a sizable piney bitterness. Still, the balance on this ale is worthy of merit, as bready malts add a hefty backbone. Finish has some lingering hoppiness with a bit of mineral flavor that might hint at staleness to some. The mouthfeel is medium in body with a perfect carbonation level, but falls a bit flat on the back end. Still, this is a clean, balanced, drinkable ale (note: I avoid calling it an 'IPA' since Sixpoint doesn't technically classify their beers within styles). Good stuff.

pours a brownish orange rust color. with just a bit of haze. 1 finger quickly dissapating off white head. smells of grapefruit & lemon with a handful of pine needles. although the citrus notes are pretty faint. taste is different than the smell. alot more bitterness than citrus notes. faint caramel malt backbone. this is my first beer from six point. i hear really good things about theyre other offerings. but im not to crazy about this one. yeah id drink it again if offered to me but not something id buy again.... cheers!
